Brookings - Alfred A. Loeb State Park

North Bank Chetco River Road

Your first impression of Loeb may well be the fresh scent of the myrtlewood forest ... a crisp, eucalyptus-like fragrance.  The park is nestled in a grove of these lovely trees, many of which are well over 200 years old.  The pristine Chetco River runs clean and clear along the southeast edge of the park.

Several campsites and three rental cabins face this scenic river.  During the year, you can fish, swim and raft, or walk the self-guided Riverview nature trail. The river offers some of the finest fall and winter salmon and steelhead fishing on the south coast.  You can plunk from the bank or try your luck on a drift boat. Throughout spring and summer you may see scampering squirrels, soaring osprey, or a family of river otters frolicking in the water.

The northern-most redwood grove in the U.S. can be found at the end of the Riverview Trail by crossing the North Bank Road and hiking the 1-mile U.S. Forest Service Redwood loop.

A friendly smaller campground, great for kids. Located on the banks of the aquamarine-blue Chetco River. We saw river otters. All the services usually provided at Oregon State Parks. Sites are roomy, lots of public space.

Beautiful camping and day use area. Great hiking and beautiful scenery. Redwoods and Myrtle wood trees. Pinch a Myrtle wood leaf and smell a natural perfume!

Nice place to camp, fish and hike right on the Chetco river. Two nice little trails, one on the river and one in a small redwood forest that connects.
